The aim of this paper is to increase understanding about the prerequisites which evolving cyber society sets for actors, activities and structures of the defenders of society. The research proposes an approach for identifying, analysing and scheduling these prerequisites for decision-making. The paper presents results of two case studies where the proposed approach is applied. The case studies indicate that in the future compositions are needed for forming of joint defence cyber community and resources for joining this community in affordable and beneficial ways. These are the next steps on the strategic path to jointly defended cyber community of global information networks.
